Wineries near Lucca

by JRiel

hello,

we'll be in lucca for the day, and i want to hang out in town while my friends want to have lunch and taste wines at a nearby winery in the countryside.

is trying to do both in one day too ambitious? also, what are some recommendable wineries near the town of lucca??

we can catch a train there to lucca from livorno if we just decide to stay in the city all day, but if there are any nearby wineries worth checking out, we may have to rent a car or mopeds, would that make sense??...

let me know if anyone has any ideas, thanks.

RE: Wineries near Lucca

by hivaoa1

are u gonna stay in Livorno?
I live in Livorno.
I would suggest u visit wineries in Pisa Province, not Lucca.
One of the best wineries in Pisa provice is Poggio Gagliardo... between Cecina and Montescudaio
....
if u want, drop me a line and i'll try to help u...
^__^
I am crazy for wine tasting and kind of know a lot about my area ;)

Travel Tips for Lucca

September Celebrations: Amusement Park

by illudiumqh36

In the zone between the Sport Palace and Borgo Giannotti there is an amusement park with a lot of attractions for children and kids. During this period this is also a meeting point for 14-18 years old guys.

Lucca CLAP Bus

by travelrabbit

Unlike the Lucca Metro (see other travel tip) CLAP services the rest of the city as well as the Province of Lucca. There's no english version of the site but a simple online translator will get you what you need to know.

There is also a website I built more for me, but thought it could benefit others at www.travelrabbit.net which covers all aspects of travel (buses, ferries, taxis, rail lines, etc) for not only Lucca, but dozens of other Italian cities. If your traveling throughout Italy you may find it of use.

Maybe the best restaurant in town

by illudiumqh36 about Buca di Sant'Antonio

It's simply the best restaurant of the city centre for quality, ambience, service, presentation of food, choice of wine and everything you ask at a restaurant.
They serve tipical dishes but you can also find some "experimental" new dishes made with old style ingredient or some variations in traditional recipes.
Obviouly all this quality have a price...it's not only the best, it's alsoone of the most expensive restaurant in town.

Beautiful house of worship

by Herkbert

The Basilica of San Frediano is a Romanesque church, situated on the Piazza San Frediano. This church is distinguished by its golden mosaic high on the facade of Christ in Majesty. The church as seen today was built between 1112 and 1147, with alterations along the way. Inside, it is truly beautiful.

There is a huge 12th century baptismal font, the Fonte Lustrale, that lies immediately at the entrance and is decorated with biblical scenes attributed to three different craftsmen. There are numerous chapels inside, including one dedicated to St. Zita, Lucca's patron saint.

There are many other fine artistic details that you really have to see with your own eyes.

Admission is free, there are coin operated light boxes by many of the artworks, and picture taking was allowed with discretion.

The cathedral (Duomo si San Martino)

by codrutz

This is the actual cathedral of Lucca - being the biggest church in town. You can see the bell tower is different, it is oldest (11th century) than the church (12th-13th century) and somehow strangely positioned. The tower itself is interesting because it has two colours, earth at the bottom and white at the top. The facade with its multicolumns resembles the St. Michele church.
